Inwood Residential Home – Where to visit?
Inwood House is in the residential suburb of Horbury in Wakefield. It is an easy 10 minute drive to the centre of Wakefield and the train station where you will find a bustling high street. En-route there are several shopping centres.
Inwood House sits back from the road in Horbury. Originally a large merchants house it would have had acres of garden and uninterrupted views over the Calder Valley. Built in the late 19th century the house had formal gardens and a large orangery cultivating exotic fruits and vegetables which was all the rage at the time. We still have pictures of the home taken at that time on the walls.
Closer to Inwood House there is Horbury itself with a range of local shops including convenience stores, doctors surgery, dentist and pharmacy. The nearest shops are a 20 minute walk or 5 minutes in the car. The home is around 10 minutes drive from the M1 with access to the rest of Yorkshire.
Many relatives want to take their loved ones out of the home for a bit of fresh air and a change of scenery. Have you ever thought of these locations? Please check opening hours since some may not be open every day of the week. Some charge parking and entry fees. Feedback regarding these locations and any others that you recommend would be appreciated to share with other families.
